>2010 Cycling targets

>Here we go then. Last season’s targets were suitably challenging – to the extent that I didn’t achieve any of them. This means that this season’s SMART efforts can be remarkably similar.

  • Beat 23:00 for a 10 mile TT by the end of the season.
    • Sub goal: personal best (currently 23:37) by the end of the season.

  • Personal best for a 25 mile TT (currently 59:07) by the end of the season.
    • Sub goal: beat the hour by the end of the season.

  • Average 22+mph for the BBAR distances by the end of the season.
    • Sub goal: personal best (last 3 seasons) for 50 miles (currently 2:06:03) by the end of the season.
    • Sub goal: close to personal best for 100 miles (currently 4:24:14) by the end of the season.
    • Sub goal: close to personal best for 12 hours (currently 238ish miles) by the end of the season.

  • Finish, on average, in the top third of finishers in solo time trials during the season.

I am not setting any targets for circuit and road racing – I may ride a few, but they’ll be training races.

All of these targets will stretch me and it’s quite possible that I could miss several/all of them. They are in my head though, so I may as well commit them to text and crystallise the challenge.
I’ve used some of the resources from the flamme rouge site in putting these targets together and trying to prioritise some process goals as well. This exercise was particularly testing! It’s well worth a look.

  1. >If you're only riding races for training, fancy seeing how we can make Tuesday nights a 2×20 minute threshold effort for "fun"?I'm putting "get to 3rd cat" as my base aim again this year 😦 That and do Flanders, Roubaix and L'Etape.

  2. >Great idea. I just hope I can get fit again. Do you do any specific sprint work in your training? I should do, but hate the pain.That's an impressive list of Euro events. Good luck with the targets.
